Ingredients in Summer Fruits Tea
This blend has a plethora of ingredients well worth noting. First and foremost is hibiscus. The Hibiscus plant, a genus of flowering plants in the mallow family, Malvaceae, is thought to have originated from the African continent. Now, there are an estimated 300 species spanning across the entire globe. Its consumption in Tea-form dates back to Pharaonic Egypt. Today, Hibiscus Tea blends continue to enthral millions.
Another ingredient that deserves the spotlight are rosehips, which are the fruits of the Rosa genus. This is the same plant from where we get our rose petals included in Summer Fruits Tea. Rosehips may not offer the same beauty as the flowers, but certainly provide other qualities much sought after. When brewed, these wonderful gems create an earthy-floral fusion of flavour.
Of course, every ingredient found in this delectable infusion offers something special. In fact, many such ingredients found in it we stock as standalone Herbal and Fruit Teas. This includes Hibiscus Tea and Rosehip Tea, as well as Cornflower Flower Petals Tea. When blended to make Summer Fruits Tea, however, you get the best of all worlds!
